Why I Support Sheetal Sheth!

Hillel says, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?” Ethics of the Fathers,

Some people may wonder why I started promoting Sheetal Sheth. After all, I’m neither an Indian nor a woman. Why do I support her? I do believe that she is a good actress, but there is a more important reason than that. I read about her difficulties getting good parts in movies because some casting directors feel that she does not look like an American, so she can only get certain roles.

There was something about her struggle against racism and discrimination that resonated with me as a physically disabled person. I have cerebral palsy, and I use a power wheelchair to get around. Often I have felt that people have made judgments about me because of the way I look, and the way I talk. I have often felt that they treated me differently because of my disability.

But enough about me. The main thing that I want to say is that there’s no one way that an American looks. The United States is an immigrant nation. We come from many lands. My grandfather came from Poland. ( Actually, it was Russia at the time, but it is Poland at the moment.)

Because of a mistake made by Christopher Columbus we call Native Americans Indians. They are not Indians! The only reason why we call them Indians is because Christopher Columbus thought that he had discovered India when he reached the New World, so he called the people that he met there Indians. In order to avoid confusion from here on, I will refer to the Indians as South Asians.

South Asians are just as American as any other type of American! If Whites, Blacks, Latinos, and Far East Asians can be considered Americans, then certainly there’s no reason why South Asians cannot be considered to be Americans as well! The casting directors in Hollywood need to realize that true diversity and inclusiveness means including members of all minority groups that make up the United States of America, and I just the minority groups for which pre-existing categories  have already been created.  If South Asians don’t fit into their idea of who  is an American, then it’s high time for them to change the way they think about what is to be an American! 

At any rate, I made the Sheetal Sheth Fan Club on Facebook, and Yahoo because I realized that if I did not do it, then no one else would! So, if I wanted there to be a Sheetal Sheth Fan Club, the only way for there to be one would be if I made one myself! So that’s what I did!    We all need to stand up for  justice, and what is right!  If we don’t do it, who will?   If we don’t do it now, then when?

Priyanka Chopra flaunts off-shoulder gown at SAG Awards

Los Angeles, Jan 31 (IANS) Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who stars in American TV series “Quantico”, set the eyes rolling at the 22nd Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards here while flaunting her curves in a pink lace mesh gown.


The annual award show took place at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall here on Saturday where Priyanka, 33, was a presenter.

Priyanka, who rose to international fame after starring in American TV series “Quantico”, in which she plays the lead role of FBI agent Alex Parrish, shared her before-the-show look on Instagram on Saturday.

The photograph showed a closet full with a variety of heels.

“Red carpet preparations! My favourite part. @sagawards looking forward,” she captioned the image.

Earlier this month, Priyanka also became the first South Asian actress to win a People’s Choice Awards.

Designed by Monique Lhuillier, the strapless dress was covered with pink and white lace designs.

The National Award winning actress completed her look with her hair in an amazing updo along with long teardrop earrings, and a simple bracelet.

During the award show, Priyanka was joined by “Game of Thrones” and “Narcos” fame actor Pedro Pascal. The duo presented the trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series to actor Kevin Spacey for his role in TV series “House of Cards”.

While her last Bollywood film “Bajirao Mastani” did exceptionally well at the box office, hopes are high from Priyanka from her next project “Jai Gangaajal”, which is slated to release on March 4.

You guys are so quick to claim “blame the industry not the innocent actresses/actors!” But literally where are your posts on that? You coming onto a post about me asking for a white actress who wears brownface and takes job opportunities away from south asian actresses to take responsibility and saying that the industry to blame is an action i’ve seen over and over with white apologists. 

You claim the industry is to blame but where the fuck are your posts about the directors who casted her, the people who work with her, her casting manager etc…? Huh?
